The Arizona Cardinals have released linebacker Jasper Brinkley after his first season with the team. Brinkley played 15 games and started three times for Arizona in 2013, recording 27 tackles in his reserve role. Brinkley made 15 starts for the Vikings in 2012, but he’ll likely be looking for a lesser role in free agency as a linebacker specializing in run defense.

I wouldnt mind giving Brinkley a second look. Zimmer's defense could suit him well.

Sydney Moss has set the women's Division III scoring record with 63 points for Thomas More College in a semifinal victory at the Presidents' Athletic Conference tournament. The daughter of former NFL star Randy Moss broke Ann Gilbert's mark of 61 points Friday night when she made two free throws with 18 seconds remaining in the Saints' 106-88 win over Waynesburg in Crestview Hills, Ky. Moss, a 5-foot-10 sophomore, transferred from Florida after her freshman season.

Brad Johnson: “The game has evolved incredibly. When I first got into the league, you could read only one side of the field. Then it got to a point where you could read the whole field, with different progressions. Then you would call two plays in the huddle. Then you’d call a run and a pass in the huddle. Then we used shifts and motions. Now the defenses are making checks at the line. Now you have both sides making fake checks. The game is so fast now. It’s incredible to me how good these quarterbacks are.

"When I watch my kids play video games, they’re calling real plays against real coverages. Kids are learning at such a faster pace. Guys are throwing for 5,000 yards now. You couldn’t do that 15 years ago. The rules would not allow it. The offenses wouldn’t allow that. Now, you’d better learn at a young age if you want to advance to the next level. My kids can draw up a corner blitz, a Mike-Sam blitz, and they’re 10 years old. They can tell you, in a one-back set, whether the play is going to be a run or a pass by the depth of the back in the formation.

“In the youth coaching I do, we have kids out here in their full pads on July 10. It’s ridiculous. The colleges and pros haven’t even started camp yet. But that’s how these kids improve so much.”

http://www.startribune.com/sports/vikings/248132911.html


the article states at one point Johnson can't walk down a flight of stairs without pain, due to the beating he took on the field.

Ya, no way kids should be in pads this much. But we're so obsessed with living through our kids sports, rather than their academics......

Sidney Rice is on track to be medically cleared for the start of his new team's offseason program in late April, I'm told. Coming off ACL injury.
